Default AnywhereCD Closing It's Doors

From our front-page news:
This is one of those stories that comes as absolutely no surprise. AnywhereCD had good intentions, though. They sold you a music CD and also allowed you to download the MP3s of all of the songs on the album right away, so that you could listen while you wait for the actual hard-copy to hit your door. I am not sure who this type of service would really appeal to, but what killed it was the lack of overall support. If you want some music on the cheap, they are having an "everything must go" sale, with all CD's priced at $7.

Online music retailer AnywhereCD is closing down within the next few days. The online retailer took a different approach toward music sales than pretty much anybody else around. The company's business model was based around selling CDs and throwing in free MP3 downloads. Or maybe it was the other way around.

It probably didn't help that the site was ugly, difficult to navigate and lacked total selection. If the site had a lot more planning and a better thought process behind it, it might have actually done well.

It would still take one incredible service to hold me back from doing things the old way and just purchasing the CD and ripping it myself.
